The Guarantee Scheme is designed to support you

As an innovator on your journey to grow your business, you may face difficulties with obtaining the funds you need during the growth phases. The Guarantee Scheme, a federal government backed program sponsored by the Ministry of Finance, is about bridging that financing gap without diluting your equity.

What differentiates the Guarantee Scheme from other options in the market, is that it provides financial support through a government-backed guarantee, without taking equity, so that you can grow your business faster.
